- Prabhas’ performance
- Production values
- Ship sequence
- Thin Story
- Slow pace
- No chemistry between lead pair
Performance: After a long gap, Prabhas made his screen presence as a lover boy on the screen. His character goes through a lot of pain. He has shown all those emotions with his expressions. Pooja Hegde looks cute and delivers her best performance. She plays her part well. The chemistry between the lead pair- Prabhas and Pooja Hegde lacks punch. Bhagyashree is fine. Jagapathi Babu delivers a natural performance. All other characters Priyadarshi, Krishnam Raju, Sathyaraj, Riddhi Kumar, and others are cast well.
Technical: Director Radha Krishna Kumar comes up with an interesting subject- love and destiny. It’s a risky proposition to make such a movie in Telugu. He has succeeded in telling the consequences effectively but the chemistry between the lead pair disappointed many. It’s a kind of film that reveals the main point in the climax, but the way the whole thing is set up is poor. The love versus destiny starts from the interval mark that generates curiosity for the second half. The songs of Radhe Shyam are soulful. The success of songs has created a huge craze for the film. The Camerawork by Manoj Paramahamsa is outstanding. Production design is very good. Editing is alright and the production values are grand. The VFX works are of top quality and the climax is loaded with CGI shots.
Analysis: Radhe Shyam is a love story with suspense elements. Prabhas’ stupendous screen presence, astonishing visuals and production values are the main assets of this film.
